Some of the different aspects of the DSP enabled receivers in access networks will be addressed in this article. A revision of the main topics which may impact DSP design will be discussed through application examples. Modulation formats, KK receivers, and coherent receivers are analyzed at light of the DSP enabled receivers' impact. Also, relevant are FEC and burst mode which are debated at the light of PON requirements. Simplified analog coherent receivers are presented as a use case to serve as simplification path for non-DSP high performance receivers. On the other end, aiming at discussing current PON limits, an ultra dense wavelength division multiplexing (UDWDM) use case is also presented where several advanced topics like pulse shaping, high density, and simplified DSP operations are considered.
